Flashcards in Histology (images) Deck (17):

What type of cell is seen here?

Q image thumb

purkinje fiber


what kind of muscle is seen here?

what distinctive feature is seen?

what molecular structure facilitates communication between cells (aka efficient electrical signal transmission)?

Q image thumb

cardiac muscle

intercalated discs

gap junctions


what type of cells are seen here?

Q image thumb

purkinje fibers


what structure is seen here? Jusitfy your answer.

What is the main tissue type of the structure?

Q image thumb

valve. It is anchored to cardiac muscle tissue that is darker staining.

the valve is made of dense connective tissue usually found in the cardiac skeleton


Name the 5 visible orifices left to right, top to bottom:

Q image thumb

left atrium, pulmonary artery, aorta, left ventricle, right ventricle


what two layers are visible in the vessel? (the lumen is at the base of this picture)

what are the darkest staining lines?

If the top visible layer is the largest in this vessel, is it an artery or a vein?

Q image thumb

  • media at the top, intima at the bottom (with line of simple squamous endothelium at the bottom)
  • the dark staining lines are the elastic membranes
  • if the media is the largest, this is an elastic artery


Is this an artery or a vein? What is the prominent feature?

Q image thumb

This is a vein because the adventitia is largest (dark intima, lighter media, longitudinal cross section of smooth muscle in adventitia)


What vessels are depicted here? How can you tell?

Q image thumb

Vein to left, artery to right. Usually beside each other. Vein is irregular, artery is a circle.


what structure is depicted here?

Q image thumb

a valve


What type of capillary is depicted here?

Q image thumb

A discontinuous capillary (or sinusoid)


What two vessels are depicted here?

Q image thumb

artery with more smooth muscle to left, vein to right.


Q image thumb


large, elastic artery


Q image thumb

verhoff stain of aorta


name 2 vessels

Q image thumb




Q image thumb

vena cava

large vein

extremely thick tunica adventitia


Q image thumb

Normal aortic valve with three thin, delicate leaflets, empty sinuses of Valsalva and tight approximation of the
leaflets in the closed position


Q image thumb

Mitral Valve (gross photographs). Fig. 1 is viewed from above from the atrium.
